Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has two players definitely missing for the match against Manchester United and another four who are doubtful.

After injuring his groin while scoring the opening goal against Maribor in midweek, French striker Loic Remy will miss at least the next two weeks.

Spanish full-back Cesar Azpilicueta starts his three-match ban after receiving a straight red card against Crystal Palace last week, with summer signing Filipe Luis likely to start in his place at left-back.

Chelsea have a trio of players - Brazilian midfielder Ramires (groin), holding midfielder John Obi Mikel (foot) and German winger Andre Schurrle (illness) - who should be fit for the crunch clash at Old Trafford as long as they pass fitness tests.

Star striker Diego Costa, who has nine goals from seven Premier League games, has a 'a little chance' of playing in the game, according to Mourinho; Didier Drogba will take his place if he cannot play.
